blind/deaf

why didn’t anyone tell me i was blind?
funny how when you’re blind,
you are also deaf.

these eyelids refuse to stay open,
so if i cannot stay awake,
i will find you in my dreams.

salvation is not given by mind,
strength,
or even love.
salvation is given only through blood.

patience is a virtue only found in the evening.

nothing else survived the heat of the day.

if only my eyes would stay open,
i just might hear the stars.

God of heaven,
fields,
and small town America,
wake me up.

i thought i was blind and deaf,
but it turns out i was just sleeping.
